Three matches have been added to “Goldfinger” in Detroit, MI on Sunday June 22nd:
Main Event: The Colony (Fire, Silver, and Worker Ant) & The Batiri (Obariyon & Kodama) vs. The Flood
The Spectral Envoy (UltraMantis Black, Hallowicked & Frightmare) vs. GEKIDO
Shynron vs. Eddie Kingston
At “You Only Live Twice”, a mysterious masked mauler eliminated Kobald from CHIKARA entirely. The Batiri now have more reason than ever to go after the massive Flood army who are looking to destroy CHIKARA. One group in particular, The Odditorium, got under their skin after delivering a low blow and attacking the group after their Trios encounter at “You Only Live Twice.” Obariyon and Kodama, the two remaining members of The Batiri, will get the opportunity to get their hands on the Odditorium (Qefka the Quiet & Oliver Grimsly) at “Diamonds Are Forever” on June 21st in Chicago, IL.
With Chikara returning to internet pay-per-view this weekend, we thought it appropriate to get the skinny from a goblin. Because that’s just what you do when you talk about Chikara.
The once evil but now defender of Chikara, Kobald, talks with us from Bled Island about his upcoming trios clash alongside his Batiri allies against the Auditorium. Plus we learn about his favorite movie and what the Prince of Goblins plans on doing to the auditorium and the rest of the anti-Chikara movement this Sunday.
Remember, if you can’t attend Chikara’s “You Only Live Twice” show, you can pre-order it on live internet pay-per-view here, thanks to our friends at SmartMarkvideo. And while you’re in the pre-ordering mood, grab Kobald’s new DVD here. Follow the master of the Demon’s Toilet on Twitter, @Kobald6.
And if you think we’re done, you nuts! We also talk the WWE’s recently completed U.S. TV rights deal and their decision to re-up with NBCU, how the deal sent stock plunging into the abyss, and more. Plus, Daniel Bryan is out with neck surgery. What moves should WWE make creatively with the title?

The first match for CHIKARA’s return event, “You Only Live Twice”, on May 25th in Easton, PA has been set. The Batiri (Obariyon, Kodama & Kobald) take on Sinn “Kizarny” Bodhi and his Odditorium of Qefka the Quiet and Oliver Grimsly.
Sinn Bodhi is the reason why The Batiri are in CHIKARA. Bodhi made a deal with UltraMantis Black to train the Batiri with the idea that they would become Mantis’ dark army. In exchange, Mantis would forfeit the Eye of Tyr to Bodhi. When it came time to make payment, Mantis no longer was in possession of the Eye, and therefore The Batiri become Bodhi’s henchmen instead. Bodhi disappeared from CHIKARA in the Fall of 2011 after losing to Mantis’ Spectral Envoy in an Atomicos match. He would resurface two years later with Qefka the Quiet and Oliver Grimsly by his side, shutting down Wrestling is Art. Interestingly enough, Kodama and Kobald were waiting by the doors when Bodhi was leaving, but Bodhi blew right past them instead of accepting their welcoming embrace. That very action could have been what convinced The Batiri to fight on the side of CHIKARA when the lines were drawn back at National Pro Wrestling Day. Now, the two sides will clash in a first time trios bout. Will Bodhi and his new recruits put away Bodhi’s former students, or will the Batiri’s experience as a triuumvirate lead them to victory?
Full free match from Wrestling is Fun!’s “Cruel Summer”: The Baltic Siege (The Estonian Thunderfrog, Latvian Proud Oak & Lithuanian Snow Troll) vs. The Batiri (Obariyon, Kodama & Kobald) (as chosen by The Estonian Thunderfrog for #CHIKpicks)
Full free match: Vin Gerard vs. Fire Ant from the finals of the Young Lions Cup VI tournament, as chosen by Kobald.
THIS IS A MUST SEE. One of the top 5 CHIKARA matches ever, in my opinion.
